Writing Towards Vision and Possibility

Ignite your creativity in a two-day virtual writing workshop tailored for Black women and gender-expansive writers. With inventive and engaging writing prompts, activities, and discussion, we'll celebrate our unique voices and perspectives while visioning into the future. We’ll find inspiration in the words of Black writers and cultural traditions that echo from our ancestral home, going beyond the standard hero’s journey to unearth our own exquisite narratives. Tuning in to our inner wisdom, we’ll discover the stories waiting to be told, and the worlds waiting to be imagined. We’ll experience restorative expressive and creative writing practices that will empower us to express ourselves boldly and authentically. And we’ll delve into elements of craft and explore writing with images and creative conditions. This workshop will be a safe space for Black women and gender-expansive writers to honor our collective heritage, affirm our talent, and inspire one another. Drawing upon passion and purpose, we’ll forge new pathways on our creative journeys.
